Our Teachers

Larisa Dykhtan

One of the most obvious talents Larisa had a child was her ability to sing. Her first experience on stage was at the age of five, when she performed as a soloist for a national choir in Ulan Bator, Mongolia,

As a child Larisa won numerous prizes for her vocal performance and participation in children's shows. She studied piano and theory at a music school in Russia (former USSR)

In 1996 at the age of 16 she decided to take her vocal skills to the next level. In 1997 Larisa recorded the National Anthem for the Newtonbrook SS which was aired every morning for many years, even after she graduated. 

At the age of 18 Larisa further studied vocals in Russia in a private school and recorded her first demo. For the following few years Larisa continued to sing as a hobby until 2002 when she was offered an opportunity to perform at the opening ceremony of CNE in Toronto. Since 2002 Larisa worked with various local bands, recorded numerous lead and back up tracks for djs and bands and won numerous vocal competitions and prizes. 

Since 2005 Larisa is working as a singer in a professional cover band doing weddings, corporate events and other private functions. 

Now, as an experienced Vocal Coach, a Mentor and an Inspiration to her students, Larisa helps them understand and manage their most natural instrument, the singing voice.

PJ Bahramian​


Growing up in Toronto Canada, PJ started his musical aspirations at a very young age. He was only 12 when he formed his first rock band, and started getting his vocal training at the age of 15. After working with some of the greatest teachers that the industry had to offer, PJ was accepted into the Musicians Institute (MI) in Hollywood California in 2003. It was there that he came to own his craft as a singer and learned all the ins and outs of the music industry, music theory, performance, songwriting and composing. Upon his graduation, PJ was offered a teaching position at MI and became one of the youngest teachers to be teaching at the Institute.


From 2003 to 2005 PJ was working as a host for a music show at a Los Angeles Persian Television Channel "ITN" and was featured in various commercials and music videos.


PJ formed his existing band, Man the Destoyer, in 2005 in Hollywood and moved it to Toronto the same year. Man the Destoyer came a long way from being a garage band to performing all over Canada and the US with some of the biggest stars in the industry, including Blaze Bayley, former singer of Iron Maiden in 2011.


Back in his home town, this well seasoned singer would like to bring his knowledge and experiences to you. Learn from the one that has been in the trenches and one who knows what it takes to succeed.
